Applications being taken for Riverside Youth Council

Under leadership of the Riverside Police Department, the Riverside Youth Council (RYC) is currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 scholastic year. Apply now! The dead line is April 30th, 2014!

The application process is a two part process. The first part is completing the written application that is due by April 30th. The second part is an interview, which will be conducted by the returning Youth Council members after reviewing the applications from students throughout Riverside.


This past year, members of the RYC participated in a retreat at Cedar Lake Leadership Camp, Big Bear where they established a strong foundation and built new friendships with fellow members. Throughout the year they participated in community events and strived to get youth involved in their community through events like the 2014 Youth Summit that was held in March of this year at Cal Baptist University. Members of the RYC put on classes and presentations for youth in the community alongside of CBU Professors and College Counselors. The 2013-2014 Riverside Youth Council was extremely fun and fulfilling for all its members.


The deadline to receive applications is April 30th, 2014, so hurry! Don’t miss out on your opportunity to get involved and show your Integrity and Purpose within your community with an outstanding group of your own peers!


The application is available on the Riverside Police Department website under “Youth Programs”. The direct link to the Riverside Youth Council’s website is
